    Looks and acts like the priest at my church. Joined Netflix to see more of him in an effort to compare the two further. Mannerisms are identical! (Wished that I could have Brendan as a son-in-law!)

    Just have to say that I think you're playing an amazing Mr. Bates in Downton Abbey - which is being shown on Danish TV at the moment. You're good!
